The team is splitting up for a holiday. Although they are on different locations, only Derek Morgan and Elle Greenaway stay in the same Jamaican hotel where a friend gave him a good rate. Suddenly they all get abrupt proof of the activity of a killer who calls Hotch -at his family home- telling him not the mind the first victims but save the girl. The diverse, personal clues prove he knows each team member well, as it turns out hacked from Garcia's computer files, and all fit in one grand scheme. Several clues converge to a certain Frank Ginley who got many convictions, but at his Langley home they find his corps, the start of a new elaborate series of clues for what he calls the team's quest, and it's obviously unusually personal, not sexual. There is a cliffhanger... Written by KGF Vissers

(at around 34 mins) Morgan, Elle, and Hotch get out of an elevator. As the elevator door opens, Hotch (in the rear of the elevator, behind Elle) is laughing hysterically, but quickly composes himself and emerges with his usual dead serious face. See more »


Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: Please don't tell me you have a crush on a fictional character.
Penelope Garcia: He's not fictional. He's the online alter ego of a real person.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: [skeptically] Hmm-hmm. But you don't know anything about him. Or even if he is a "him".
Penelope Garcia: Okay, you know what? I do- look, we meet online at specified times that he is never late to. We spend hours adventuring and chatting, during which time I have his undivided attention, and he lavishes me with flattery.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: Wow...
Penelope Garcia: When was the last time you had a date go that well?

The most important "clue" was left out of this preview
11 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am still trying to figure out why Garcia never held responsible for what she did. While I realize the game she played on her own laptop is what precipitated this two part episode, therefore "creating" a case to investigate in the first place. However, her "gaming" is what tipped off the Fisher King to the whole teams personal information. Everyone's privacy was invaded because she played a game using BAU connection, that allowed the unsub access to their private lives. Yet it appears that the only thing that Garcia "suffered" was to be upset. Garcia was recruited by the BAU because she hacked into their computers. I am surprised that nothing happened to her, she was not censured, she was not suspended for what she did. That was a real error on the BAU's part as far as I am concerned. Garcia has a propensity for digging through personal information that has nothing to do with the cases that are being investigated, and I fail to understand why her egregious behavior is overlooked time after time. She is very good at what she does, however, there should be a limit to what is tolerated by the BAU.
